Google Compute Engine (now GA) vs. AWS cloud: Game on

Brandon Butler (2829853) writes "Some believe the IaaS cloud computing market entered a new stage this week with the general availability release of Google Compute Engine. Amazon Web Services has dominated this market given its multi-year head start, leading to significant feature parity compared to any other IaaS cloud provider. No other company has the breadth and depth of databases, storage options and virtual machine instance sizes to match AWS. But the GA of GCE, which came with new support for RHEL and SUSELinux, plus live VM migration and a price drop, means that Google is here to stay in the IaaS market. The question is, can it give AWS a run for its money?"
